Taken from the original Check my Skillz swap and altered slightly to fit just 1 partner...
For this swap you are going to put your crafting hat on and make things :)
Take a gander at the list below and choose something to make yourself and send to your partner. This is not a quick turn-around swap - it'll take effort and time.
Pick three items from the list for your partner. No store-bought or made by someone else allowed. You can alter and existing item, but do it so that your creativity comes through. Slapping a sticker on something and calling it altered will not do. With this swap you can really let your creativity come through. Where it says no altered allowed, that will take precedence.
You have to adhere to the amount specified for each item otherwise you did not meet requirements. You can make the items from cloth, yarn or paper (where applicable. A paper pincushion is just a bit silly). This will give us all the same playing field as we all have different skills :)
*Note - only one of the ATC, Skinny or Inchie items can be picked as they are all quite similar.
5 bookmarks / bookthongs
3 ATC's (2.5x3.5" artwork)
3 skinnies (basically 3x5" ATC's)
6 twinchies ( basically 2x2" inchies)
4 notecards (envies optional and notecards blank, no altered allowed. Make from scratch)
5 handmade postcards (blank for your partner to use; no altered allowed. Make from scratch)
8 handmade envies (sturdy for post and mailable size; no altered envies allowed. Make from scratch)
1 doll (any medium e.g. paperdoll, stuffie, spoolie, mini ami, dotee, button fairy, altered doll etc.)
1 or 2 altered 32ct matchbox (if sent empty, make 2; if stuffed, send 1. Stuffing not need to be handmade)
1 big matchbox diorama / shrine
1 chunky book (min 20 pages decorated - as you would number pages in a book is how to count 20 pages; min size 14x9 cm)
3 lettersets (2 x A4 or 4 x A5 pages per envie; 3 envies per letterset)
1 pincushion (comfortable usable size)
1 needlebook (to hold at least 30 needles or pins comfortably)
1 carved rubber stamp (at least 5x5 cm)
1 sewn pencil bag or tote bag or shopping bag
1 handmade pendant
1 cuff bracelet
1 small trinket box
If there is something you want to see on the list, please let me know. If the number attached to a certain element seems unfair, please let me know. I do not craft all the things on the list, but think 1 ATC for a pincushion is unfair. Trying to balance out effort.
This is sender's choice. Send what you are proud of. For inspiration go onto Flickr. For clarification on what each element is go here for the SB craft and swap terminology. I'll obviously also answer any questions.
4 weeks to craft - more than fair. Package for SAPO rough-handedness.
Requirements to join:
2 rated type 3 rswap will get you in. This is a heavy craft swap and don't want anyone overwhelmed. Making it two partners to get 2 ratings for your effort. PM me about recent 1's and 3's.

Let's have fun everyone :)
